If you love inspirational music with classic vocals and a bit of a spiritual vibe, you have come to the right place! Kristine is described as a cross between Kristen Chenoweth and Amy Grant. She has received the NATS award for her vocal talent, was named one of the top new LDS artists of the year by LDS Specialties and has been featured in the worldwide Christmas Broadcast by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She has also been a featured soloist in The Assembly Hall at Temple Square Concert Series.
Kristine has performed for more than 300,000 people on 100+ stages, playing lead roles in many musical theater productions (Off Broadway Theater, Hale Center Theater, Grand Theater, Rogers Memorial Theater, Sugar Factory Playhouse, West Jordan Arts and Riverton Arts), as well as operas and operettas (David Gardner Hall, Kingsbury Hall, and Marriott Center for Dance). She has been a featured soloist on the stages of college campuses (U of U, BYU, SLCC) as well as venues such as Dumke Recital Hall, Abravanel Hall, and Kingsbury Hall.
With an engaging stage presence, a Broadway-caliber soprano voice that can be both tender yet powerful, and lyrics that touch the heart, Kristine presents her own unique style of music to audiences around the world.
Something that sets Kristine apart from other musical artists is that she is also a motivational speaker who combines her speaking skillset, inspirational stories, crystal-clear vocals and live original music together to deliver unforgettable “Keynote Concerts” for conventions and seminars.
Kristine started piano lessons at a young age and played in many competitions. She grew up singing and dancing with her sister, Camille, on the rock fireplace “stage” in their living room with a microphone that wasn’t even plugged in. She then taught herself to play the guitar. When she signed up for a guitar class in middle school, she soon realized that the class was to teach basic music concepts which didn’t challenge her, and so she transferred into choir. She never looked back. Soon after she started private vocal training and then studied Vocal Performance at the University of Utah, during which time her bright, coloratura soprano voice earned her leading roles in many operas.
After college, Kristine became a vocal coach, music director and leading actress in many musical theater productions. Notable roles include Anna in The King and I, Tzeitel in Fiddler On The Roof, Mabel in Pirates of Penzance, Christine in Phantom, Fiona in Brigadoon, Amalia in She Loves Me, Maria in Sound of Music and Eliza in My Fair Lady.
Some of Kristine’s other favorite roles are that of wife, mother and grandma. She loves spending time with family and friends, baking goodies, creating new recipes and reading (especially suspense and mystery novels or self-improvement books).
Kristine began writing music early in her life and wrote her first award-winning song in junior high school, but did not begin publishing her music until she was in her thirties. Her classical training and Broadway-style soprano now mesh with her religious upbringing and love for self-improvement to bring a new and unique style of music that will tug at your heartstrings and have you singing her songs for days to come.
Kristine also writes religious children’s music and founded the Aspire Children’s Chorus to perform and record the album, “Because He Came" as well as the Aspire Elite Performers training program for children and youth.
